This week I started training a lot of new puppies.

Sammie, a 4 month old Maltese Poodle mix, is one of them .Today was his second visit. Sammie is very gentle, very smart, very well socialized, with a moderate temperament and a high ability to learn. His Mom is a responsible dog owner who wants to raise this cute Puppy the proper way.

Sammy with Mom

Mom signed Sammy up for training. On the first day I started to practice all of the obedience commands. Sammy was great. Today we repeated all of the exercises slowly and I started to add a little bit more time during the sit stay and down stay commands. I also started to teach him a few tricks such as Roll over & Crawl.

Next week he will come again. Until then his Mom will practice with him a few times each day with 5 to10 minute sessions. One of the exercises she will do is a handling exercise.

This is another step in teaching a puppy that the owner is the leader.

  • Start at the chest and run your hand down the front legs Play with feet and toes.
  • Go down along the ribcage to the rear legs. Play with feet and toes.
  • Play with puppy’s tail and massage the base of the tail.
  • Move up along the back rubbing the fur, check ears, massage and play with them.
  • Open puppy’s mouth. Check his eyes.
